Golden Dawn( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Talkie-era musicals were usually all-star revues or tales of backstage heartache and triumph. [This film] -- based on a 184-performance, 1927 operetta co-created by Oscar Hammerstein II -- ambitiously breaks free of those musical confines to expand the genre's cinematic reach. Set in World War I-era Africa, it tells the tale of Dawn, a tribal woman love with a British soldier but chosen to be the sacrificial bride of a god ... The film was originally shot and released entirely in color (another example of the production team's ambitiousness), but color prints have unfortunately long been lost."--Container

Female comedy teams( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trying to find a counterpart to his very successful comedy team Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, producer Hal Roach made several attempts to combine two female comedians. The first team with Anita Garvin & Marion Byron did only three films before both actresses separated. Nevertheless, their "A pair of tights" is today seen as one of the greatest silent two reel comedies ever done. Ath the beginning of the 1930s the teaming of platinum blonde Thelma Todd with shy ZaSu Pitts and later with clumsy Patsy Kelly was a more fruitful idea, resulting in a series of sound shorts which ran successfully for five years until Todd's mysterious death in 1935. The 2-disc DVD set presents a selection of the best shorts in restored versions."--Container
